Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

You can’t love somebody and not trust them.
; Trust has to be earned.


Playlist pieces

what can be spared does not belong


Why don’t you like me, why don’t you like me without making me try?...
I could be brown, I could be blue, I could be violet sky, I could be hurtful, I could be purple, I could be anything you like.
Gotta be green, gotta be mean, gotta be everything more..

Orson Scott Card has a newish book: Lost and Found, and I’ve been missing the Pathfinder series, so this was a happy. Then partway into it, I was having such a good time, I decided to put it off and finally start the Mither Mages series …I’m enjoying The Lost Gate AND and! it plays in Washington DC in familiar towns and streets AND and! it goes on to play in Yellow Springs, Ohio ! Xenia! of all places! Is it going to Kyoto next? I’m a happy.

‘…she could not bear to lose the chance to be with you for a while longer.’
‘This may complicate matters for me,’ said Daneel thoughtfully.
‘It is in a good cause,’ said Giskard.

Asimov is hilarious and a complete romantic (on multiple levels). And Daneel and Giskard are the cutest best friends ever. —Even more than Daneel+Lije Baley. And even a smidgen ahead of the super cute Aziraphale+Crowley.

So many all the things

SO MANY ALL the things. Podcasts, library books, books on my shelves, streaming audio, friends’ content, news programs, stories, educational programs, ETC.

Too many all the things. I cannot all the things.

ended abruptly, but the ending was not really worse than the rest of it had promised. Tons of excess verbage from cover to cover. But I liked the premises, settings, and characters… Aside from the much excess of it (not so many words necessary to tell the story), I liked it. I’d really like it as a a well-done (multipart?) movie.

Card's Shadow of the Giant

slated in reading at 12:16 am
I’m posting this because I was half-horrified to learn about this today; how come nobody told me a new Ender book was coming out? I came upon it by chance — there was a reference on someone’s blog about running into Orson Scott Card in a bookstore, and a visit to Card’s site Hatrack.com revealed that Shadow of the Giant is already in stores. Sheesh. The first three chapters are available online.. I do think Card’s writing isn’t as impressive as it used to be, but I’m already in love with the Ender’s series and its characters, so my order for this book has been necessarily placed.
